Yes, that's what I understand as well. You can hear it pretty well
through WTNT's signal at night when the conditions are good.
A little digging around came up with this:
The Spanish-language station with the time pips and Morse "RR"
identifier on 570 is CMHI, Radio Reloj, in Santa Clara, Cuba. Radio
Reloj is Cuba's national time-standard station and is based in
Havana. It has transmitters all over the island...its Havana outlet is
on 760 (CMCD). The format of Radio Reloj consists of two announcers
taking turns reading news with time pips superimposed. Time checks are
given on the minute, followed by a brief time tone and the "RR"
sounder. There are no commercials.
So there you have it...
